well since i couldn't sale my brand new leupold 30x40 fx-3 for anything i decided to go a different direction with it. so here is what i did, went to the local gun shop and picked up a brand new ruger 10/22. ordered a Leupold base and rings off ebay and here is what i have so far. (see Pics)

as far as the shooting this scope is amazing even at 50 yards, the only problem is the trigger is WAY to heavy and pulls me off target.

so next up is a complete trigger job from Kidd innovations, with extended mag release that goes under trigger guard. and a few other particulars from him for the bolt, maybe some jeweling etc.

next is a barrel from hi-desert dog with twisted flute and threaded end with a better buffer setup. Anyone have any good suggestions on best buffer for suppressor, also a barracuda stock from them.

last but not least a suppressor from Mr. Mike,

:gun:

I have a 10/22 RR with a $650 Burris on it. I am STUPID as well. By all means take the barrel band off the rifle.

thanks for making me feel better doug, band is off now but i will have my barrel and stock in, in a few weeks anyway. I just hope my medium leupold rings clear the .920 barrel. its already close but if my measurement serve me correct the scope will clear barely.

Hey, don,t give me ideas. I have a 10/22 that I have thought about playing with. I have a Leupold 6.5-20 on another gun that I am thinking about taking off and I did not know what to put it on. What kind of stock are you putting on it. Those new laminates have caught my eye.? :thumbup:

i am either going with the hogue OD green over mold, or the barracuda, here is a link to the barracuda, also here are two more links to the barrel and trigger i am going with. i must say it is amazing how much nicer the 10/22 is with the Leupold on it. it amazes me how tight of a group it will shoot right out the box just with this scope. i can't wait to get the trigger job to help me from pulling off target.

I totally reworked my 10/22 that I had as a kid last year. I spent a lot of time over on rimfire central. I got Clarks in LA to do my trigger and it is awesome. As for the buffer I went with the tuffer buffer and really like it. This winter I'm going to finish my custom(to me) 10/22 with a Boyds thumbhole laminate stock and a host of other goodies.

Miss Hammer's is going to require extensive work cause we are converting a right handed 10/22 (maybe) to a left handed one. It will be an interesting build and conversion that's for sure and is going to be built to fit her tiny little self.

I'm Mrs. Hammer Miss Hammer is our 8 year old daughter and Lil' Hammer is our little boy. Most of us when the board got up and going started calling each others children by our screen names with Miss in front of it for our daughters and Lil' in front of it for boys. For the men with wives they usually refer to them as Mrs. Followed by the screen name. Its easier than keeping everyones kids names and wives names separate IMO.
